The statement read: "On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve and the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie."

On October 22, 2021, it was reported that Brian's autopsy results came back inconclusive and his bones would be sent to an anthologist to determine a cause of death.
His disappearance prompted those following the case to query whether or not his parents will receive any jail time.
Chris and Roberta Laundrie are not currently facing any charges in relation to the case.
The parents initially claimed to have last seen Brian on September 14, 2021, but later revised that date in a statement issued through their attorney.
After finally reporting him missing on September 17, they told police they had driven to the reserve in search of him.
While they say they didn't find Brian, they did find his silver Ford Mustang and drove it back to their home before contacting the cops the next day.
An investigation continues.
How did Gabby Petito die?
She was reported missing on September 11 by her mother after Brian returned home without her on September 1.
On September 19, 2021, authorities in Wyoming announced a body was found in the area where the search for Gabby had been underway.
The Petito lawyer later confirmed on September 21, 2021, that the body was identified as Gabby.
He added that Gabby's predicted death was three to four weeks before her body was found.
Gabby's family announced that they had launched the Gabby Petito Foundation in honor of their late daughter.
A post on the foundation's Twitter page read: "The Gabby Petito Foundation is up and running.
"We have a lot of work to do, website is just starting out so be patient with us, we will get there. Thank you for all the support and love!"
The family then repeated a phrase coined by Gabby's dad in an Instagram post after her remains were found at a Wyoming campsite on September 19: "She touched the world."
